Poetry: 1 Poem by Robert Okaji

Hunger is Hunger  

Somewhere we jumped the tracks
he said, wiping himself clean with my 

blouse. But this life’s all you got
Yeah, I said. Maybe. Look here.

His mouth dropped open
when I split his skull, a dark

moon on a darker night,
white stumps reflected

in the window. The axe
wouldn’t pry free, so I left it

planted there with the good book
and soiled prayers, pants still

bunched around his ankles,
acknowledgement that not

all sin weighs the same. I have
found the season and gathered 

my stones. I have acknowledged
purpose and time. I refrain no more.
